Fashion Designs with Paper

This winter, when we were discussing different careers, Brooke mentioned that she wanted to be a fashion designer. We did a little research about what designers do and how they do it. I also found some great books, called Paper Fashions by Klutz, that let Brooke and Taylor try their hand at putting some outfits together. The book comes with some tiny little coathangers that are wonderful to hang their creations, but where do you put all of them? I decided to make a "store" where the girls could display the outfits they made. I looked around the house and found the perfect sized cardboard box (this is always easy to do when you've just moved) and began to create.

I added some special features like this light fixture and doll house furniture.

Here is the result:

I am working on a blog that will have step by step instructions for any of the crafts seen on this blog. Since that may not happen for a while, if you are interested in making this and have any questions please let me know.

This is a very sweet project. I have a daughter who loves to design and sew. It's fun to see that develop.

Thank you also Molly for your kind comment on my FIMBY post today. It is nice to not feel alone.
